He worked for the NYS Department of Corrections, earning his way up the ranks through the years before retiring in 2008. Norris was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt, fish and trap.

He had a great faith in God that was reflected in his love for his family. Norris was a caring father that always put his family first and a proud grandfather who couldn’t get enough of his grandchildren.
